Excellent food and service

Traveling from france, we had one of our best meal at this restaurant during our travel in Colorado. We had the steak and the trout, they were perfectly prepared and the sides were great ! The service was super nice! It s not fancy, but relaxed, affordable and with good food !

We had great ribeyes; they even knew how to fix them Pittsburgh style. Chocolate dessert was great. Fun but not too noisy. Interesting decor, great staff.

We stumbled upon this place whilst driving towards Estes Park and boy was that a stroke of luck! I had the cheese and ale soup with salad, my fiancé had the mushroom burger with fries and coleslaw. They have a full bar and loads of beer options. It's cosy and the decor is super funky. The food was so fresh... More

We had the ribs as a side plate. Wow. Outstanding. Never tasted ribs like these before. We used the house sweet bbq sauce on them. Just excellent, excellent taste. We also had a smoked brisket sandwich and a smoked brisket reuben. They were both great in their own right, but ohhhh, those ribs! Try 'em. Guarantee you'll like 'em.

The BBQ this place has is amazing. Their sauces are all delicious (even the spicy, which I'm not usually a fan of), and the smoked meat is so tender. Our wait for a table for two was only a few minutes, but it started to fill quickly after we got there. The wait staff was friendly and offered great beer... More

The food was great and the service was pretty good too. It would have to be because the wait was 50 minutes on a Friday evening. The tables are packed in like sardines which did not appear to put anyone off. They have a really nice variety of local craft brews too. I wanted to dislike this place but I... More

My wife and I had lunch today, Sunday. Excellent food and service. Get there by 11:30am, gets crowded by 12:30pm, then there's a wait ! Have fun and definitely make the effort !

The BBQ is great, we really enjoyed our meals! Don't miss this one! We were told there is often a long wait, and can certainly see why.
